Availability of the flight can be checked by the traveler through the airline online portal and it is displayed in the form of inventory, travel classes present in the airline, and city pairwise. If the airline does not offer the service on that specific city pair, it will show a connection by using its flight data or it will show the flight data of other airlines along with the real-time last seat accessibility, PNR generation.

The system integrates with popular GDS systems around the globe like Amadeus, Sabre, and Galileo enable its end users (B2B or B2C) to have real-time inventory and best prices. In addition, the system supports multiple currencies and payment gateways.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) helps the airline industry in making policies and standards.
The airline reservation system also supports the uploading of self-contracted inventories provided by partner flight suppliers of the agency through the software. The system also includes a basic XML Out functionality, which allows travel partners to share their inventory. Amadeus, Sabre, Galileo, and Worldspan are the four major GDS software being used by IATA agents and non-IATA travel agents from all over the world.
We provide travel agency software that is integrated with travel inventory providing GDSs, allowing end-users to book flights from various LCCs and airline companies. As a result, we are helping our partner travel agencies and OTAs grow their businesses.
A flight booking system is an online tool used by travel agencies (both IATA and Non-IATA agents) for a hassle-free flight booking experience for their customers and partner travel agents.
Our expert team develops Flight Booking Engine with B2B and B2C models to enable travel agencies and travel companies to sell flight tickets to B2B/B2C customers with real-time flight fares and availability. Our flight reservation software is integrated with single or multiple GDS systems, LCCs, and third-party flight APIs, both IATA and Non-IATA agents based on client needs.
With the advancement of top travel technology and mobility solutions, agencies are utilizing online ticket booking software, which allows end customers and sub-agencies to search and reserve deals online. That's why, most of the travel start-ups, IATA, and Non-IATA agencies are going for the OTA model.
BookingXML is currently integrated with several GDS providers (Travelport Galileo and Amadeus), which means real-time connection with such wholesaler systems. Our flight reservation system features include options to view booking details and print e-tickets, allow passengers to choose their own seats, display fare rules and baggage information, supports frequent flyers programs, option to book multi city flights and more.
To be able to purchase flight tickets directly from GDS systems, your travel agency must be IATA accredited. Otherwise, you can book a ticket through another partner who is already an IATA accredited agent, or you can buy tickets from an airline consolidator like Mystifly, which obtains fares from over 70 different countries.
The flight reservation system is the way to the modern, scalable, and robust architecture for reserving a flight. The most dominant issue that an airline face is the pressure to cut costs, which slows the overall growth of the airline industry. The success of the airline is determined by two factors: the travelers and the technology used to book a flight.
IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC): Technology and Travel Industry
New Distribution Capability will enable the travel industry to transform the way air products are retailed to corporations, leisure, and business travelers, by addressing the industry’s current distribution limitations: product differentiation and time-to-market, access to full and rich air content, and finally transparent shopping experience.
IATA launched its 'New Distribution Capability (NDC)' for the development and market adoption of a new, XML-based data transmission standard (NDC Standard). In short, NDC enables airlines to provide their customers with a personalized travel experience that is more than just a ticket.
The flight ticket is transformed into a journey or an experience, enhancing the capability of communications between airlines and travel agents. Adoption of NDC will enable airlines and travel agents to have greater transparency across touchpoints such as airfare, car rental, hotel, and so on. It will also help in customer engagement throughout the journey. NDC is an excellent technology for tailoring an end-to-end travel experience to their customers' preferences.
New Distribution Capability (NDC) allows the distribution of airfares and ancillaries via third parties which is being developed by airline association IATA. It is a new way for them to connect with airlines, which could lead to innovative solutions for delivering air content to clients.
The IATA NDC enhances merchandising technology with rich content and branding and it continues to collaborate closely with IATA and airlines to deliver industry-leading content via travel commerce platforms.
The main objectives of IATA are:
To ensure safe, regular, and economical air transport for the benefits of people worldwide.
To provide a means of collaborating between air transport companies and agencies.
To promote and develop international tourism.
To provide a common platform for travel agencies and tour operators.
To co-operate with other international air transportation organizations Essentially, IATA is airlines working together to standardize and improve service internationally. Due to the vital role played by IATA in air transportation issues, it is recommended that you ensure that your carrier/forwarder is an IATA agent.
There are different methods through which you can enable flight search and bookings to your travel agency website.
Meta Search Engine
Develop a Metasearch engine that can integrate multiple XMLs from various providers. The end-user can compare and then buy from the lowest-cost provider's portal. When you search for flights or hotels, you will get a list of results that source the availability of flights and their fares from various other travel sites such as Kayak and show you the best fare on that route. The sites that would be displayed there should have a license to operate and get their information directly from the airlines.
Flight API Integration
You can develop your flight booking system in your internet booking engine (IBE) by integrating APIs from different flight suppliers (Non-GDS) company like Agoda, Arzoo, TBO, Mystifly, who does not require IATA accreditation for providing their contents.
White Label Solution
White label refers to a product or service that is purchased by a reseller who rebrands the product or service to give the impression that the new owner created it. White label products are often produced through mass production.
